Corridor Planning Group and Technical Task Force to Provide Input
IDOT and INDOT have formed Project Working Groups. These groups will meet to participate in every major aspect of the NEPA process, including the definition of transportation needs, the development and evaluation of alternatives, and the selection of a preferred alternative.
The Corridor Planning Group (CPG) will provide broad perspectives as well as community level input regarding every aspect of the Illiana Study. The Corridor Planning Group (CPG) consists of study area municipal leaders, representatives from Will (IL), Kankakee (IL) and Lake (IN) Counties along with the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning (CMAP) Northwestern Indiana Regional Planning Commission (NIRPC) and the Kankakee Area Transportation Study (KATS).
The Technical Task Force (TTF) will provide technical expertise and additional perspectives, and consists of staff, other governmental bodies, transportation agencies, resource agencies, and interested groups or organizations. These Working Groups will meet on a monthly or bi-monthly basis throughout the Study, and the general public is welcome to attend and observe these meetings.
